Scholes says Manchester United have experience to win
Paul Scholes is convinced Manchester United can win all their remaining seven games to retain their Barclays Premier League crown.
United, chasing an unprecedented fourth successive league win, took the initiative in the title race with victory over Liverpool last weekend while Chelsea dropped points against Blackburn.
United still have to play Chelsea - who are four points behind with a game in hand - and must also face Champions League-chasing Manchester City and Tottenham, but their destiny is in their own hands.
Scholes, who has already been involved in nine title wins, told Inside United: "I'd like to think we've got the right players, ones who have been there before and know how tough it is to win the league.
"The game against Chelsea is going to be massive and we know we need to win that one. But that's not the only important game.
"If we want to win the league we're going to have to win every game. It's going to be tough but I'm sure we can do it."
Scholes is not discounting the threat of Arsenal, who are just two points behind in second, to United's hopes.
The 35-year-old added: "You can't rule out Arsenal, especially with the run-in they've got.
"They've played all the top teams twice already, so they'll be confident of putting together a good run of results.
"But the bottom line is that if we win all our matches we'll win the league."
